LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – The Boulder City Police Department reported that it is investigating a robbery-murder from two and a half years ago.

In October 2021, a Boulder City resident was the victim of a “follow-home robbery,” according to police. The victim was followed from Las Vegas to Boulder City, where the suspects robbed the victim of her purse.

During the robbery, the victim fell to the ground and sustained severe head injuries. The victim died in December 2021 from the injuries sustained during the robbery. The Clark County Coroner’s Office ruled the death a homicide and a murder investigation was initiated.

During the investigation, detectives served numerous search warrants, which ultimately led to the identification of two suspects, both residents of Antioch, California. Investigators obtained open murder warrants for the arrest of both suspects in February 2024.

One suspect was arrested on March 18 by the Portland Police Bureau in Portland, Oregon. That suspect is currently being held in the Multnomah County Detention Center in Portland on a Nevada murder warrant and is awaiting extradition. The second suspect was arrested on March 19 in Contra Costa County, California by a US Marshals Fugitive Task Force and was extradited to Las Vegas on March 30.

This investigation is ongoing and anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact the Boulder City Police Department at (702) 293-9224 or Crime Stoppers of Nevada at (702) 385-5555.

The Boulder City Police Department was assisted in this investigation by National Park Service Law Enforcement, the Henderson Police Department, the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office (CA), and the US Marshals in Las Vegas, NV and Oakland, CA.

UPDATE: According to court documents obtained by FOX5, the suspects are Angelina Marie Crawford and Amoni Zhane Ponnell-Fountain. A criminal complaint shows that the suspects killed the victim with a motor vehicle. Police said that the victim was still holding onto her purse when she fell and hit her head on the ground as the suspects drove away.

The report noted that the suspects fraudulently used one of the victim’s debit/credit cards to buy $150 worth of gasoline following the robbery.
